This Friday’s Guest DJ: SAMMY BERELL

Sweden has a long tradition of extremely talented, technically driven and innovative guitar players. But they definitely don’t grow on trees and they don’t come in bundles every Christmas either. So when a new bright star on the northern sky is born you can be sure to tell by the vivid sparks!

Sammy Berell grew up in the 1980s and 1990s in a suburban area north of Stockholm. In fact and by coincidence the very same place where Yngwie J. Malmsteen also was born and raised. This was later becoming an issue, since a lot of people were obviously comparing Sammys playing style to Malmsteen. Something that should be seen only as a compliment really.

A couple of months ago Sammy released his new album Beyond The vail. Read our review here!

This week Sammy will host the Guest DJ Show where he spins ten of his most influential albums. After the show we will of course spin some tracks from Sammy Berell’s latest album. Enjoy!

The Friday Guest DJ Hour Show airs at the following times:
15:00 and 21:00 Central Europe
9:00 am and 3:00 pm US East Coast
6:00 am and 12:00 pm US West Coast

  • Stig G. Nordahl

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
